Dumb question: You say Self-Titled Debut Album. But the clarification makes it sound like ANY self-titled album, not necessarily debut, qualifies.

Thanks!

And just to make sure ... If there were a band called More Beedo. It's only acceptable if the album name is exactly "More Beedo" (and not "More Beedo Says Hello", etc)?

Could someone SHEEP 6 or 11 but get the bonus if they correctly guess the year or atomic number of the sheep answer? Not that I'm planning to do that (assuming I remember to enter)...

Nice try :P

2. SHAKESPEARE KILLED ME – Name any character in Shakespeare who doesn’t live to see the end of the play

O, bloody, bloody William Shakespeare! Romeo and Juliet & Hamlet were the most popular plays, followed by Titus Andronicus, Macbeth and King Lear. Alas, no love for Timon of Athens!

Here lies a wretched corpse, of wretched soul bereft;
Seek not my name. A plague consume you, wicked caitiffs left!
Here lie I, Timon, who alive all living men did hate.
Pass by and curse thy fill, but pass and stay not here thy gait.

Okay, if we give the same answer for #6, I'll be officially Creeped Out. Weird that I would have had the same score with Hamlet. I probably should have gone with Rosencrantz or Guildenstern.

How ever is Chester Arthur a sheep? The TD gods must be crazy?
My philosophy: We watch for the game. Players who get in the way of the game intrude, whether they're arrogant or adlib or cackle or fidget or make noise or are rude to AT. We want those who just play the game and don't make it about themselves to win.

So true! But I don't know that play very well, so I'd have trouble coming up with the hit list myself

And for the record, I wrote this question before seeing SHAKESPEARE'S KILLING ME come up as a category on Jeopardy

I just saw the recent version of it on PBS (with Cummerbund Bandersnatch as Richard III). While the real-life Princes in the Tower are only thought to have been killed, they definitely are in the play.
